Farmers and activists call for action against climate change – CNN Metro – CNNMéxico.com.

And the translated english version here, thanks to Google translate.

Excerpts…

At a distance of 1.5 km of the Moon Palace, a roadblock was set with 1,000 elements of the Federal Police that blocks the passage, although until 12:50 pm the members of Via Campesina has not yet reached that point.

In the city center, about 40 km from the resort, about 1,500 members of civil society organizations began to march on a major avenue of downtown Cancun and head to the municipal council.

Raul Benet, Global Campaign for Climate Action (GCCA for its acronym in English) said he expected the participation of 100 civil society organizations and 3,000 participants who would integrate the protest throughout the day.

At 16:00 hours, local time, will officially open the high-level segment at COP 16, where heads of state and ministers will participate in international negotiations seeking to reach an agreement on climate change.
